I picked Weissbluth's book up and I couldn't get past the negative tone -- every explanation and diagnosis is about "parental failure to X". I suspect there is useful information here, especially for people at the end of their rope, but it is couched in surprisingly dismissive language. I thought it was universally known to people involved in childrearing and with power over adults that narrating and normalizing positive replacement behaviors you want to see is more effective than focusing attention on misbehavior, but apparently that is less universal than I had thought. Not finishing this one. ( )

Gonna have to call it quits on this one. Dr. Weissbluth's writing is very repetitive, so much so that sometimes it's hard to dig the meaning out of any given passage. I found no information that would help me with my 5-month old's poor sleeping habits, and the many parental anecdotes were all variations on "I tried Dr. Weissbluth's methods and now my child sleeps perfectly!" with no practical advice. I'm currently reading Dr. Ferber's Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems and in comparison the latter is a much more informative and better-written book.

well. the thing about this book is that there are lots of great tips and things to learn and do and all the reasons why. but wow he's kind of an asshole (or at least writes the first half of this book as if he is). the first half or so of the book is all judgement and warning and use of terminology that he doesn't explain until the second half of the book, when it gets actually useful, and he suddenly seems like a nice non-judgemental guy. but i think his theory and practices will come in really handy, and i actually expect to refer back to this; i just really didn't like or appreciate the baggage that came with all the information. 2.5 stars because of all that.

A lot of people recommend this book, and I do think it has helpful information, but it is so confusingly presented that it is nearly impossible to extract. Weissbluth could really have used a good editor to cut about 300 pages from his book and make it meaningful to the people who need to understand his advice. ( )

The main gift this book gave us was the idea to only let the baby stay awake for two hours at a time before putting him down again. Awesome idea.
